the ping problem was solved ... before o long weekend of party !
The problem , I supose are my wireless eq. , i use LinkSys WAP11 AP and
.. i think
the only way to ping them or access via web, is to have both ip's from the
same class (your computer
and the AP) , that in case you use a private (non-routing) class. In case
you use public ip's
the AP's respond to ping from any subnet or host u are trying to ping them
o web'on them.
I think this is an manufacturer desire/soft implementation.
All these problems that i've had untill few days ago, where solved with a
nat box !
The other problem related to bandwith optimization, i haven't solved yet
! My quess is that an
antena (omnidirective) that i use for an AP, is not quite qood fixed ...
and wind or birds give me some
head trouble .... interference ...for sure is an option , i'm quite sure
of that ... and also the tree's
(mother nature) have something to say about this.
Also these day's i've played with a LinkSYS BFEW wireless router... and
another spookie think has
happend. I've tried to test my network ... 2 pc's connected, an
laptop(Centrino,Intel Wireless) and a pc
connected to lan's interface. As i've tried to copy some movies(3,2 GB) ,
at say around 47 % of the copy
process my laptop have frozen ... On the status window of my router,on
wireless interface, i recived the
the same amount of packets that i have sent (i've read the packet
counter). After that i've stopped the
process from task manager ... the wireless interface still have some
activity (sending & reciving same
amount of packets) .. and after about 1 minute everything came to normal !
Anybody ... have some logical explantion to this !? .... have this
problem been encounter 'ntill now ?!
Thank you all , again !
